“Boodschap Van Algemeen Nut” 2021 –
(“Public Benefit Message”)
The posters who was designed especially for the ONBOARD Biennale reuses a text the artist found back in his Instagram feed. The work is meant to bring an absurd and comedic replacement of the Public Benefit Messages the Flemish government sends out on public television. In these weary times of social disstress and instability the artist
wanted to focus on positivity by placing a quick and playful message on a poster. Designed in the Belgian Tricolor; the aim is to unite instead of divide! Have a great day y’all.
